The ROON integrated MERGING+PLAYER is a music streamer and pre amp in one making your life very simple again. The combination of the best music player available and the best sounding DAC allows you to access your music library remotely from a tablet or phone and connect directly to your amplifier or listen on headphones with the purest sound ever. It doesn’t get any simpler!
At the heart of the MERGING+PLAYER is the RoonCore elegantly controlled by any Roon Remote on a tablet, smart phone or computer.
MERGING+PLAYER simply connects to your home network via an Ethernet cable to access your music library directly on any NAS or server as well as connecting external USB drives or memory sticks with two dedicated USB ports.
Plug the MERGING+PLAYER into your home Wifi router and you are connected to the Roon server. Roon looks at your music and finds photos, bios, reviews, lyrics and concert dates and makes connection between artsists, composers, performers, conductors and producers. Within Roon you can sign up to Tidal High Fidelity music streaming services where you have access to over 25 million tracks of lossless quality music.
MERGING+PLAYER uses the same audio output components and offers identical audio quality as the original MERGING+NADAC which has received rave reviews and awards from the worlds audiophile press. Both are designed to be connected directly to your amplifier or active speakers for a one box solution. No need for a separate pre amp as the integrated volume control and source selection is built in.
As with the original MERGING+NADAC, MERGING+PLAYER enables connection to any player, server or computer on the network and its AES, Optical and Coaxial SPDIF inputs allow other digital equipment to be connected. These are identical features to the original MERGING+NADAC but without the need to have an additional computer to access your music files. Simplicity itself!
The music player for music lovers partnered with the professionals choice
While you sit back and listen you can control your listening level, map your channels, check the dynamic range of your track, read the notes, organise your play-list or even equalise your room without using anything more than your Roon app.
